THE MIRIAM DEFENSOR-SANTIAGO STORY

Oct 8, 2016

In this biographical special, Sen. Miriam Defensor – Santiago helped narrate how her childhood was like. Being born in an average family but with intellectual lineage, young Miriam was obliged by her strict mother to be the best in everything. She turned to her father for the support and appreciation she needed until she made it as a young, promising, and intelligent lawyer. Having her own family with husband Narciso Santiago Jr. did not stop Miriam from expanding her knowledge by attending schools abroad. He and their children supported Miriam in all of her endeavors until she made it as the youngest legal officer of the United Nations of her time. After her father died, Miriam opted to stay in the country with her husband, to be of service to the Filipino people. She was then known as Mighty Miriam who shamelessly and bravely exposed the corrupt government that made her assume that she was a sure win in the 1992 Presidential Election. Her unprecedented defeat crushed Miriam but not as hard as when she discovered her son’s dead body in his room after he killed himself when he did not make it to UP School of Law like his parents.
